OUR TRUE HOME IS THE BODY
As life goes on it’s our belief that we will all come to the same conclusion that we ourselves are the gold, that real value is measured on our happiness and the state of our body.
Time is our most valuable asset, and being present for it can make or break how we feel about our lives and how the people dear to us feel about our interactions.
An aching body with shoulders rolled forward, or a general lack lustre of energy has an effect on our general state, and like it or not; how we behave. This contributes to how we conduct ourselves with the people around us, and things we hold most dear to our lives.
Our mental state is based on how we treat ourselves and the stories positive or negative we prescribe to. The mental practice of ingraining positive mindsets just as important training as flexibility or accountability.
. . .
How many times do we need to learn the lesson that if we don’t take care of ourselves we will allow important areas of our life to falter.
